Marketing a Used and Recycled Computers Business

At Gaebler, we've seen what great marketing can do for a small business. But if you own a used and recycled computers business, exceptional marketing may well be the determining factor in your long-term survival and success.

It's difficult to pinpoint a single marketing strategy that is capable of turning around a struggling business. However, great marketing strategies share a common characteristic.

However, foundational marketing principles may not be enough to capture the attention of buyers in today's market. Effective marketing now means translating market learnings into techniques and tactics that are relevant to your business.

Customer Awareness

Most used and recycled computers businesses go out of their way to maintain clear channels of communication with their customers. In this market sector, managers and promoters need to be extremely familiar with their customers' needs and purchasing preferences. More often than not, failure to maintain a robust connection with the marketplace translates into poor brand recognition and lackluster sales. By improving market awareness, small companies can often establish more meaningful customer connections than their competitors.

Coupons

Think you know all there is to know about coupling? Maybe not, at least when it comes to using coupons for used and recycled computers business marketing. Although there are various ways to utilize coupons, the universal objective is to increase traffic, revenue and market exposure. In a typical coupon scenario, used and recycled computers business owners use coupons to encourage new customers to give their product offerings a try, effectively stealing market share from competitors that have invested in customer loyalty schemes. Coupled with other marketing techniques, a steady stream of legitimate coupon promotions can incentivize periodic customers to increase the frequency of purchases from your company.

Media Monitoring

Measurement and evaluation are critical considerations for effective PR and marketing plans. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. However, measuring the amount of influence your brand has in the marketplace can be trickier. Fortunately, media monitoring has the ability to give your used and recycled computers business a sense of market presence and other variables that are difficult to quantify. Although media monitoring is not the only tool for measuring intangible brand qualities, it has the benefit of highlighting negative PR, giving your used and recycled computers business the ability to control bad buzz when it appears in the marketplace.
